Report: Spurs not interested in Andre Ayew, Marseille's out-of-contract star

Imbula Marseille

The Ligue 1 favourite has also been linked to Newcastle United in the last couple of months.

Despite various sources linking Tottenham Hotspur to talented Marseille star Andre Ayew, Sky Sports have reported that the North Londoners are not interested in recruiting the midfielder.

The 25-year-old represents one of the bargains of the summer, with his contract at L'OM set to expire in June. Ayew has been at the club since 2007 and has scored 60 goals in over 200 games with the Ligue 1 giants.

But Sky Sports have stated that Spurs are not pursuing the winger, which goes against stories the likes of the Metro have been putting forward about a possible move to White Hart Lane.

Until Ayew reveals his new club, there remains the chance that he will end up in the Premier League, but that doesn't have to be with Tottenham.

The Ghanian star has been mentioned as a possible target for several other Premier League club's in recent months, with Newcastle United said to be particularly interested in bringing him to St James's Park to join the host of other former Ligue 1 players. Sky Sports have previously stated that Swansea, Everton and Arsenal were keeping tabs. 

Tottenham have several wide players at their disposal, with Nacer Chadli, who plays the same position as Ayew on the left wing, arguably their best performing midfielder of this past season.

Nevertheless, the Marseille star was top scorer at the African Cup of Nations this year, and was also voted the best African player in the French top flight, having scored 11 times this season.
